What is MeRT?


Inform care through technology.

You have a unique brainwave signature. The brain is composed of approximately 100 billion neurons that interact through tiny electrical oscillations, or brain waves. We conduct a qEEG to better understand your specific brain function and activity. This objective, digital baseline analysis reveals patterns of dysfunction.


Traditional TMS therapy consists of magnetic stimulation being emitted at the same location and frequency based on a set universal protocol. By utilizing qEEG technology, the lab is able to identify which locations to target, as well as the optimal frequency for treatment which will provide you with the best possible outcome.


Translate brainwaves into insights.

Your EEG is analyzed and processed by the cutting-edge lab at Wave Neuro, where a personalized brain care protocol is developed. This protocol, tailored to your brain, intelligently choreographs brainwave activity into a more synchronized pattern.


Deliver precision care.

Your brain care protocol is delivered via in-clinic, outpatient therapy. Our equipment delivers gentle, mild pulses of energy to stimulate the brain by frequency, location, and output intensity to identify and activate neural network pathways. These magnetic waves allow us to gently stimulate specifically targeted areas of your brain.

A trained technician positions the magnetic coil gently against your head. This coil delivers your individualized treatment protocol to the targeted region of the brain. Stimulation occurs in five to eight-second bursts called “trains” with a brief rest period between each train. Sessions are typically 30-45 minutes, five days per week, for approximately four to eight weeks.


Reassess and track progress.

Your care is objectively measured, managed, and evaluated. We take sequential qEEG recordings every 10 treatments to monitor progress, to assess changes in brainwave activity, and to track your progress resulting from brain stimulation. Based on the qEEG, the lab at WaveNeuro will make adjustments to your protocol as needed to achieve optimal results.  This ensures that as your brain changes, your protocol remains up to date with your unique needs.

MeRT, which stands for Magnetic EEG/EKG -Guided Resonance Therapy, is a highly customized use of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), based on sophisticated diagnostics. It is a non-invasive, painless, and drug-free option for the treatment of a wide range of conditions.

MeRT protocols start with a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), which allows us to see patterns of dysfunction which are related to varying disorders of the brain, such as learning and behavioral issues, emotional disorders, brain injury, and others. The qEEG performed on each patient provides us with a personalized protocol that guides each individually tailored treatment.

The equipment used for treatment is the same as what is used in traditional repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). This equipment has received FDA approval and/or clearance for certain conditions. For many conditions that we treat, it is being used off label. It is non-invasive and generates gentle magnetic waves that allow to stimulate specifically targeted areas of the brain. MeRT Treatment protocols have seen success in improving conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussions, Depression, Anxiety, Sleep Disorders, and many more.
